talk about that. where do you think the presidential race is right now. guest: mitt romney is looking very good peer that is why in the obama administration did not want to run against mitt romney. he was the most threatening of the candidates. it is very hard to take on an incumbent. it has only happened -- republicans have only done at one time in the last few years. is in the last time it happened when clinton took out bush? it is curious, for example, there were 70 million viewers of that debate the other night, the highest it has been since 1992, the last time an incumbent was taken out. that is because people are uncomfortable with obama, but if they are not political knocks, like we are, they have not been paying attention, or have not been watching the debates and the just want to see who the challenger is and whether they are comparable with him. after monday night, everybody is pretty comfortable with mitt romney. >> i was reading back on your twitter feed. back in february you were saying conservatives should support mitt romney. is that because of the field or because of h

into the race cycle with obama and romney? host: what do you say? guest: right now i'm excluded from the first debate. the commission is the presidential debate commission and that is private and made up of republicans and democrats with no interest in seeing a third voice on stage. we have filed three lawsuits to get me on stage based on other third-party candidates who have filed lawsuits. there doesn't seem to be much hope. we filed on the antitrust round, something that has not been done before. host: how much do these debates matter and what are you looking for to hearing on wednesday? guest: the debates are tantamount to me having a chance of winning. you can close the lid on winning the election. is winning getting enough votes to cause one of the other two who ends up winning to give more than just lip service to these issues? potentially. i view this as a victory every single day. there are so many people -- i think i speak on behalf of the majority of americans. i think they consider themselves fiscally responsible and socially respecting. i am in that broad brush category

president and mr. romney have scheduled rehearsal times. the hall itself has been closed to cameras all day, no media is permitted in the rehearsals. right now, this is the spin room, where hundreds of the press are setting up their own studios. we also learn from the white house that the president would get the first question tonight, two minutes to respond, and in terms of who is invited to night, students from the university of denver, a member of guests invited by the campaign will be invited and independent. -- in attendance. once again, it all starts with our preview program at 7:00, the debate beginning at 9:00, focusing on domestic policy. earlier this week, journalists and political communications scholars discuss the upcoming presidential debates and ask the citizens to judge candidates on their grasp of issues and the qualities they want in a leader. this was held by the national communications association, took place here at the newseum in washington. this is about one hour and a half. >> it is my distinct pleasure to welcome you here today in our knight studio at the newseu

is taking. i think romney has a real chance to govern with the right agenda. >> back in the corner there is a question. >> the last couple of weeks in particular have been very difficult for governor romney and his campaign. they have done a couple of three boots, as they call them. where do you think his campaign has been missing the mark and what does he come up to do in the first presidential debate and in the remaining five weeks? >> i ran for president and failed miserably, so i am in no position to opine on this one. i am not much of a political analyst, anyway, but let me just draw from a little bit of experience and say that's it helps when you look into the camera and speak from the heart in ways that allow the voters to feel the sincerity and the commitment, to the issues around jobs and economic growth, which i think i happen before anything else. is there opportunity tonight to do that very thing? the listeners in the audience may hear the words and make process the data. we all do that. but we also feel something when our candidates speak to us. do you know what i mean

the right side of those issues and mr. romney continues to be on the defense. romney was testy. >> they did not mention the 47%. >> that was not a deliberate decision from the romney campaign -- from the obama campaign not to mention that. what is important is you are sitting on your couch in denver or des moines or charlotte and listening to the clear difference between the two candidates and that's what you got tonight and that's what will be good for the president. >> [indiscernible] >> i think we have continued to lay out a clear vision on how to move this country fort. >> what will the schedule before the republicans? and what about ohio? >> we feel great about ohio. be aalways going to battleground state. we will continue to go there. i think that will be difficult for romney. >> he supports medicare vouchers. he thinks we can add $7 trillion to the debt before we even get to our debt problem that now exists. i think people are smarter. i think governor romney plays the american people cheap. i think his problems were clear. >> [inaudible] -- drone strikes? >> we will hav

for romney ran unsuccessfully for the nomination. he had been running to the right for four years. and i think it becomes like a conditioned behavior. and i think he was slow making the turn back and heading towards swing voters. and i didn't really see him doing that effectively until his convention speech. and then really really really last night. and last night, it really was the first time this campaign that he struck me like the guy that i saw in 1994 and the guy that ran as governor that he was sort of back close to mitt romney 1.0 as opposed to 2.0 or 3.0 and back to who he is. and i tend to think that people -- when you're not pretending to be somebody else, i think you do a better job. and i think this is romney. and i think he's been a long time pretending to be something else and had a hard time getting back to his roots. but i think this is his roots and i wondered whether he could get back there and he did. obviously a strong performance. >> following on the sense -- the wall street journal had an interesting poll yesterday or monday of people indicating they were sort of

after the morning after. >> when is that? >> i do not know and make no predictions, but if romney gets smashed, i happen to think the political problem in the country today is we have a center left party and a far-right party. that is a short show party -- a structural problem. the republican party has gone nuts. that is my opinion. they have been simultaneously at war with math and physics at the same time. [laughter] on the deficit it was that the deficits do not matter. biology boggles some of them, that guy in missouri, too, for that matter. what happens the morning after the election from a loses? i wonder about the morning after the morning after though. we have gone way too far to the right and we need a different republican party. we need a center-right republican party which i think the country really needs. it needs to be a check on the rate -- the left and center left and that is the only way we will get a check on these issues. >> history suggests the second term of clinton and reagan were the productive terms where they had big achievements. it's hard to know whether

not feed into a larger narrative in a way that i think the romney campaign would have preferred. a second reason why it is less effective now is under sec rules, the super pac campaign are able to get lowest available rate for their advertising right now. super pacs are not allowed to do that. they are spending far more, sometimes three times as much, and to get the same money. did the third reason i think you're seeing things less effective, in the last month or citizens are waking up and spending more dollars. a bunch of people were coming at the last minute. we have not really seen that. the small dollar fund-raising model has been able to expand nicely for obama toward the end. romney has had to spend a good fortune in september going to fund-raisers trying to collect these $2,500 checks. he has been very successful. it really was a strategic disadvantage at that time in the race. we can get into some of the other questions here. the other thing i would say is that i think there is going to be an interesting political legacy of this election. in all the elections i have covered
